Super Puma ditching 'responsibility accepted' by Airbus Helicopters
Lawyers representing workers injured in a Super Puma ditching off Fair Isle in 2012 have said Airbus Helicopters has accepted responsibility.
All 19 on board the Super Puma EC 225 were rescued safely after it ditched during a flight from Aberdeen to the West Phoenix rig, west of Shetland.
Aviation lawyers Irwin Mitchell - representing 12 of the oil workers - said the Airbus move paved the way for settlements to be agreed.
The firm was previously Eurocopter.
